As part of the defense structure of the Assignano hamlet this tower with adjacent building have first been constructed around the year 1300. As it goes throughout the centuries many modifications have been made but currently the tower and house are in need of a full scale restoration. The stone walls can be preserved and modern comforts can be added. The tower has a very particular shape and can make a delightful and spacious addition to the larger spaces on the ground and first floor of the adjacent home.
The front of the tower and the adjacent building face the street leading up to the arch which gives access to the hamlet. Currently the entrance to the building is located just right of the archway, inside of the walls. A restoration however might change the lay-out and location of the front door.
